14 AugChanges to VIT’s teacher registration scheme

Posted on 14 Aug 2019

The Victorian Government has recently amended the Education and Training Reform Act (2006) to require

  • principals and early childhood managers to provide certain information to VIT
  • registered teachers to provide certain information to VIT and Working with Children Check Victoria (WWCCV)
  • VIT to closely align its registration scheme with the WWC Check scheme. This scheme assesses applicants who apply for a WWC Check to enable them to engage in child-related work.

These changes come into effect on 1 September 2019. This means that the changes to the registration and regulation of teachers in Victoria will commence during the annual registration period, and will apply to all new applications for registration from 1 September 2019.

The attached information sheet includes important information regarding new:

  • Reporting obligations of teachers to VIT and WWCCV
  • Reporting obligations of principals and early childhood managers to VIT
  • VIT teacher registration scheme
  • factsheets for teachers and employers
  • a copy of the Education Legislation Amendment
